According to Uproxx, the tour will kick off in February 2019 outside of Boston, Massachusetts end with a series of shows in May in New York City, with tickets going on sale this week.

Ansari has been gradually resurfacing at spots across the country. He has done stand-up sets at Nashville’s Zanies Comedy Club in September and performed also in Wisconsin, Philadelphia, and New York where he appeared at the  Comedy Cellar. That’s the same club which hosted Louis C.K.’s first public performance since he  admitted to exposing himself to woman comedians backstage reports CNN. According to Vulture, Ansari hasn’t incorporated his #MeToo allegations into the new routine.

According to CNN, Aziz responded to the accusations in January with a statement saying that he “surprised and concerned” by the allegations and had apologized to the woman following her texts expressing her discomfort. He said, “I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said.” He also wrote in the statement, “I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”
